Make Your Artist Happy!
No matter where they are on their artistic journey, every young artist hits road blocks.
They become frustrated. As a parent, you want to answer their questions.
“How do I draw this better?”
“Why can’t I paint this?”
“How do I mix these colors?”
“Why don’t I like my work?”
You Just Found The Answers
Homeschooling Art’s comprehensive curriculum is designed just for kids – to help young artists overcome every obstacle imaginable.
In our lessons, they’ll learn
Color & Mixing
Style & Composition
In 2 years, your young artist will progress through 7 stages of development.
With a strong Foundation in the 4 cornerstones of art.
1. START NOW
This is where your artist is right now. It doesn’t matter if they’re a complete novice, or have been working on their art for years, your child will learn things they don’t even teach in college level art courses, and with easier methods completely unique to Dennas’ teaching sytem.
2. DRAWING Cornerstone
Learn to draw better with our 3 Steps to Accuracy. Learn basic perspective and facial anatomy. Practice different techniques in pencil, charcoal, and pen & ink. Discover simple tricks for drawing basic shapes that even famous artists don’t know about.
3. PAINTING Cornerstone
Practice all kinds of techniques, in watercolors and acrylics. Learn how to hold a brush for different effects. Understand how to bring your paintings to life and express yourself in your own way.
4. COLOR Cornerstone
Learn to mix any color by understanding how different pigments work together. Complete our 10 comprehensive Color Journals, each with up to 25 color mixes, Dennas created these journals, which follow his versatile palette of 10 pigments. Based on the French Impressionist’s color theory, he’s been coaching professional artists using this palette for over 30 years.
5. STYLE Cornerstone
Discover how to look at your work and know exactly what it needs. Learn the tried-and-true composition techniques used by every master artist. Find out what makes your work unique, and truly express yourself.
A critical aspect of teaching art is to nurture the artist’s self-confidence. How do you do that? What is the right thing to say when they don’t like their work? Art lessons normally tell you what to do, our lessons also help you know how to do it. Why does an artist make a bad face when you tell them how great their work is? Understanding how to encourage in a way that boosts confidence is all through our lessons – so you can give your young artists a stronger self-image.

Homeschooling Art is designed to help you encourage, nurture, challenge, and delight your creative children at home. Kids of all ages and abilities are able to understand real art concepts and techniques. Why? Because we rewrote the book on art.
We took the complex and made it simple. We took abstract ideas and made them concrete. We took the mysteries out of art and made it clear and understandable.
Everything is explained and demonstrated for you. If you need it, there are videos you can show to make it even easier. Don’t know how to say something? There are Teaching Texts, which are dialogs you can read verbatim, or paraphrase in your own words. Need a reference that will lead to success? These are all provided in every lesson. All you need is a printer.

Dennas Davis, illustrator of the original Beginner’s Bible, talks about his homeschooling art curriculum.
Question: “Why did you create the Homeschoolingart.com website?”
Dennas: “I really wanted this curriculum to be used by as many families as possible, because I know how much it helps young artists. I first developed this for my own homeschooled children. We’ve been using it at my school, Firstlight Art Academy, in Nashville for 15 years. Over 2300 students have found out how wonderful learning and creating art can be. We absolutely know it works.”
Homeschooling Art founder, Dennas Davis, has illustratred over 25 children’s books with more than 5 million in print worldwide.
